Above links were provided by mbasco through Detectist and Ant1967-2
An extract of a NAPFA newsletter was provided as well. Prospectors in, or going to NSW should consider joining that organisation.



Here is an extract from the latest NAPFA newsletter (1/9/2016) about this.
2. NAPFA wins new Fossicking Districts in NSW
Since our last newsletter we are happy to report that four new LGA Fossicking Districts have been gazetted – the first new ones since 2001.
These are Narrabri, Cootamundra, Upper Lachlan and Guyra. Bathurst and Walcha have also been approved will be gazetted any day now.
Temora, Mid-West, Tumut and Snowy River are ‘interested’ but awaiting council amalgamation settlement before final commitment.
The Department of Resources and Energy say this brings the area covered by fossicking districts in NSW to 8.8% of the area of NSW. This compares favourably with mining Exploration Leases which cover around 10% of the state.
This means that you can fossick in these areas without the permission of mining company Exploration Lease holders. You still need permission of land owners.
NAPFA is continuing to lobby to further increase the number of Fossicking Districts which support NSW regional ‘geo-tourism’ and local economies by making it simpler for us to go out there and fossick.
